Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Cardamine raphanifolia - Greater Cuckooflower

Greater Cuckooflower is a recent introduction to Cornwall that has become well naturalised along a few river corridors. First recorded between Fentongoose and Hugus (SW74W, 1981, J.MacNaughton) it continued to spread along the stream into SW84. In 1988 it was found by the banks of the River Allen (SX07N, B.Molland) and by 1995 had reached Sladesbridge (SX07A, R.M.Belringer). The most recent finds have been at Lower Cann in a wooded area by a stream (SS20H, 1994, C.N.French), and along the river Menalhyl at Gilbert's Water (SW96G & H, 1995, I.J.Bennallick).
